I ended up with a £70 fine for parking in a loading only area, no ticket I just ended up with a letter a month after saying I had an outstanding ticket, asked for evidence and they had pictures but I had no ticket, and a picture of the sign where my car wasn't even parked... a week later there's a pole with no sign and it was claimed the sign had been stolen between me being there and trying to find the sign, ended up with a court date after trying to appeal and just paid it. Absolutely ridiculous that they can just do that and then just take you to court, even after appealing with a strong case but I can't afford to take time out to go 50 miles away to a courthouse because of a parking ticket.
Ridiculous, the place is full of cars where people park and walk into town, so I park up in this apparent loading only area to unload my girlfriend's things moving back to University and end up with a damn fine that mysteriously disappeared. There is literally no reason for it being loading only either as it's completely residential.
I find 'parking enforcers' or whatever the prats are called absolute scum, the amount of time I've seen them waiting in areas for people who don't know about a suspended parking area or for a ticket to expire by literally 30 seconds is ridiculous, and especially where they know it's someone old or infirm who won't ever challenge it because they don't have the ability. The lot need throwing into a pit of illegally parked post-it notes, each one describing how they're a lower form of life than an amoeba. No offence to amoeba-kind.
